On the y-axis find 250; draw a linehorizontal to the x-axis (the dotted line) starting at 250 and stopping when itreaches the curve. Now starting at this point on the curve, draw a line parallelto the y-axis (dotted line) until it crosses the x-axis. Read how many tosses itsays it took to have 250 cubes come up with an orange face. Does this matchup with how many throws it took? Check your data table. According to ourmythical data the graph would indicate that about 3.8 tosses would berequired to have 250 of the cubes come up with an orange face. If we look atthe table we see that after three tosses 206 of them had come up orange.

As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.
Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern
I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern
The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
